High camp Denali at 17,200 ft

Lost my appetite but otherwise spirits are good up at high camp as we prepare  mentally for the summit push tomorrow. Chose the wrong freeze dried meal – Mexican chicken – not what my stomach wanted when dinner time came around! Those kidney beans looked revolting.

The winds have picked up and the weather has definitely started to turn but Andy, Ian, and Mike from the Alpine Institute have decided we have the green light and will go for it. Quite a lot of people getting frostbite when making the wrong decisions with the weather here this year so we have full trust in our guys who have been awesome throughout.
